Meet Curtis Allgier


This man -- Curtis Allgier, 27, a neo-Nazi inmate from Utah -- is accused of shooting and killing a prison guard while being examined at a local hospital. Authorities say he then carjacked a vehicle, led police on a high-speed chase and fled into an Arby's, wher a 59-year-old bystander wrestled the gun away and saved the day.

From the story:

"This inmate is a bit peculiar in that he has ties to white supremacist organixzations," he said. "And he had had some dynamics there that caused us to be concerned with his own safety [at Utah State Prison]. There had been some fallout from some other supremacists in the prison -- a falling out, so to speak."

Hat Tip: Many thanks to Chase!
